SONY WALKMAN NWZ-W202 MP3 PLAYER
I typically don't wear headphones when I'm running, not even in ultras. They always seem to be a pain in the ass, and when I'm on the trails I like to actually be "in" the trail if you know what I mean. The first sign I get that I'm over trained & need a break is if I have to wear headphones when I'm on the trail. When I'm running solo on the road however I'll typically wear my headphones. ANYWAY - my husband and I bought some new headphones, cord free by SONY. It's a pretty fantastic little device! I thought for sure the headphones would come off while we were running, but so far no problems. All the controls are in the earpieces. If you're into running with music and don't like the cords that come with your normal Ipods or Mp3 players this is definitely a great option. The player weighs35g, you can fold it, twist it, and another bonus for those rainy days: It's waterproof.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EAT AND RUN BOOK REVIEW
I've finished reading Scott Jurek's book "Eat and Run". It's a great read - has some recipes that I'm excited to try and is written well. It was a bit strange for me reading the book and reading about some people I know (Leah, Caballo, Valmir). The book wasn't terribly long (translation: working, training, mom, wife can read in a respectable amount of time). Grab the book and check it out! You won't be dissapointed!
SALOMON XT SKIN PRO 3 SET HYDRATION PACK REVIEW
I've had a few hydration packs in my day - but this one so far is the best. Previous hydration packs of mine have all been Nathan and Camelbak products. Those served their purpose, but they weren't fabulous. I had been watching my hubby run in his Salomon pack for almost a year now, and longingly looked at the way it just seemed to form to his body. It looked so comfortable, I had to try it.
